LEAF Organic Vodka made from Alaskan Glacial Water won a Gold Medal, as did Khortytsa Platinum Vodka. In fact, the Khortytsa Distillery was named among the world’s best distilleries at the 2014 NYISC Competition.  Only 19 of the world’s leading distilleries were recognized with this high honor.

“LEAF’s packaging, price point and organic origins clearly resonate with today’s consumer lifestyles, while Khortytsa is a quality vodka at a terrific price point that is growing rapidly.”

Max Dubossarsky, Global Spirits CEO

Both LEAF Organic Vodka and Khortytsa have made significant headway in United States since that time.  “LEAF’s packaging, price point and organic origins clearly resonate with today’s consumer lifestyles, while Khortytsa is a quality vodka at a terrific price point that is growing rapidly,” notes Global Spirits CEO Max Dubossarsky.

Ukraine’s famed Khortytsa (Hor-Ti-Tsa) Distillery is among the world’s best distilleries and located in Zaporozhe near Khortytsa Island. This ancient island’s history dates back thousands of years and reaches the roots of civilization. It is considered a sacred place in Ukraine and is one of the country’s seven wonders. 

Built in 2003, the Khortytsa Distillery is among the world’s finest distilleries. It uses a local organic filter containing schungite (a unique natural mineral) which allows it to get as close as possible to the structure of natural water.  The filtration process is further enhanced with special birch and alder-tree charcoal and quartz sand.

Gold winner Khortytsa Platinum is the most popular item in the line Khortytsa line and retails for $11.99 per 750-mL.  There are three other items in the line including Khortytsa Ice (which took a Silver Medal), with a bottle color that changes when chilled, retails for $11.99 per 750-mL; Khortytsa Honey Pepper (which received a Bronze Medal), offers a spicy zing to a variety of cocktails, retails for $11.99 per 750-mL, and Khortytsa De Luxe for vodka connoisseurs, which is a “super premium” vodka with a suggested retail of $24.99 for a 750-mL bottle.

LEAF believes vodka’s main ingredient, water, is what truly defines the spirit.  LEAF Vodka is sourced from unique waters around the country. The Gold winning variety is made from Alaskan Glacial water, which lends a pure, smooth taste with a hint of sweetness. The other, which took a Silver Medal at the event, is made from Rocky Mountain mineral water, which provides richness and complexity, offering a warm and savory impression. The water sources give LEAF Vodkas their signature tastes.

The packaging for LEAF Vodka is designed with the intention to have the contour of a leaf, accentuating the brand and giving it a premium look. With a recommended shelf price of $18.99 for 750-mL—and Certified USDA Organic — LEAF Vodka is well positioned within the dynamic and growing vodka category.
